Posted for ZWT6. Great way to use up puff pastry! Very basic, but can be jazzed up. See end of instructions for ideas. Note: Amounts of ingredients and therefore servings will vary depending on how much puff pastry you have, so entered 4 for Zaar purposes.

    I made this quick and easy treat for my dh; because there are just two of us at home, I used 1/2 of 1 sheet and got a yeild of 8 straws. They were perfect, golden, puffy and full of flavor. I used coarse sea salt, fresh ground black pepper and parmigana reggano...so good. Thank you for sharing your recipe, which we will enjoy again.

    I, like another reviewer, used 1/2 of a package of pre-made puff pastry. My portion was 9 X 9, so my 'stems' were 9 inches; I did slice in 3/4 inch slices, and my yield was 13. I sprinkled with grated parmigiano-reggiano, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper. They baked for 18 minutes, and were done and lovely! They would be awesome as nibbles, with cocktails! Thanks for sharing, The Wallaces!
